Permitted Developments

There are types of home development which are granted planning permission through national legislation without the need to submit a planning application, known as permitted development rights. There are however limitations and strict guidelines which need to be met for a project to be eligible.

Here is a list of some of the works which permitted developments rights can provide automatic planning permission for:

  • Rear extensions
  • Double Extensions
  • Internal Alterations
  • Demolition
  • Side Extensions
  • Loft Conversions
  • Garage Conversion
  • Building a Porch less than 3m2

It is important to know that permitted development are more restricted in some areas of the country known generally as ‘designated areas’ and therefore a planning application may be required for certain types of work. These include conservation areas, national parks and areas of outstanding natural beauty.
